: The Foundations of Music

Played by KENNETH SKEAPING (Violin)
EDWARD J. ROBINSON (Violoncello)
Op. 9, No. 2, First and Second Movements
BEETHOVEN'S String Trio in D (Op. 9, No. 2), of which the first two movements are to be played this evening, is less often performed than its companions in G and C Minor, both of which are undoubtedly finer works, but it contains some delightful pages, even so. As a whole, it is ' earlier ' in style and more Mozartian in character than either of its fellows, though many will find it none the less attractive on that account.

: Prof. H. G. DALWAY TURNBULL : ' 'India-I, The Country and its Inhabitants'

PROFESSOR TURNBULL, who is to give a series of six talks on the subject of India, is a Lecturer under the Oxford University Extension Lectures Committee. He was formerly Professor of English at Deccan College, Poona. In the course of his talks he will deal with the history of India, the religions and customs of its peoples, and in particular with the effects of British rule on the general welfare of the country as a whole. In his first talk he deals with the country and its inhabitants.
He points out that India is larger than all of Europe, excluding Russia, and contains 200 languages and dialects, with fifty different scripts. He draws comparisons between old India and modern India, and explans the differences between the three chief racial divisions : Aryan, Dravidian, and Mongolian.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
